Taos, New Mexico
While tourism has invaded the Rocky Mountains of the American West, Northern New Mexico remains off the beaten path, an enchanting world of ancient Native American culture, Spanish heritage and the bohemian art world.
At the foot of the Sangre de Cristo peaks, Taos is a region of dazzling juxtaposition. The town sits on a sagebrush desert, overshadowed by the lushly forested peaks. Long before Spanish or white settlers arrived, the town was the home of Pueblo Indians- Today, Taos provides an otherworldly getaway for those looking for a western adventure away from the crowds.
The summer offers world class hiking and mountain biking. When not in the mountains, visitors can enjoy the town’s historic Spanish architecture, art galleries and restaurant scene. During winter months, the local ski area, offers some of the most challenging slopes in the Rocky Mountains. While the area is known for its steep tree covered pistes and hike-to terrain, it abounds in beautiful runs for all levels, with a world-class ski and snowboard school.
Embodied with Taos charm--built in the classic adobe hacienda style with modernized architectural touches, the home is a world unto itself. Whether guests are looking to spend a relaxing afternoon by the fire, or are returning to the hot tub after a long day on the slopes or hiking, the home leaves little to be desired.
The four bedroom home and five and half bathrooms, includes a sophisticated surround-sound entertainment system and gorgeous stone fireplace. The state-of-the-art kitchen comes equipped with all the essentials for a simple meal amongst friends, or for preparing grand feast.
For guests looking for some more seclusion, the one-bedroom and one-bath guest home, immediately adjacent to the main home, features a sophisticated kitchen and living area with fireplace.
Both of the homes’ russet-colored concrete floors have radiant heating, and many windows let in the area’s famed New Mexico sunshine and clean crisp air.
The gated entrance and heated garage guarantee privacy.
Surrounded by classic adobe homes and pungent sagebrush, and with expansive views of the Sangre de Cristos, the home is a 10 minute drive from downtown Taos and a 25 minute drive from Taos Ski Valley.
Come and enjoy a sophisticated sanctuary within the rustic charm of Taos. Any visitor will feel that Northern New Mexico has earned its moniker as the "Land of Enchantment."
